On Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department (ICPRD) will host the "Splashes for Scholarships" family aquatics carnival at Mercer Park Aquatic Center/Scanlon Gym. The carnival will include water games, inflatables, food, a silent auction, and the chance to dunk a firefighter. Tickets will be sold at the door for $1 each. Proceeds from the purchase of carnival tickets will support ICPRD's swim lesson scholarship program so every child has the opportunity to learn how to swim. This family-friendly event is open to all ages.

Splashes for Scholarships is made possible through a partnership between ICPRD and the University of Iowa event planning class.
